To Wrap or not to wrap

I have frogged my "wrap" at least five times now. It's getting ridiculous. I am such a perfectionist with things it's not funny. I didn't like the way wrap was looking at first so I frogged the whole thing, and I was ALMOST done with it. That was pretty stupid now that I look back at it. I like the way teh moss stitch is looking. When I finsih this I will have to get more yarn possibly for the lace edging I'm sure. I may do that tomorrow, all depends on my grandmother and how the weeding at her house goes in the morning.

Ponchos and wraps

Well I am on the second panel of Aly's poncho. If I don't run out of yarn I'll have it finished by tomorrow, well the panel. I probably won't sew it til Sunday. If I don't finish the panel tomorrow then I'll get it done next week.

I started swatching a diagonal rib pattern for some wraps I want to do. One of them I want to do in some different colors. I like the Bernet Softee Chunky yarn but we'll see. That's teh yarn I'm doing Roger's blanket in as well as my slippers in. I also like the way that the Caron Simply Soft Plum Wine color knits up as well. So we'll see.

Mindless knitting

Today's going to be fun. I am tryign to stay out of the family room since there's a ton of drywall and insullation that are covering the floor, and the leaves and twigs that came through Monday when a tree fell on the house.

I did a poncho for a friend's daughter and she uses it as a blankie. It's too cute. Aly said she wanted one, so I finally figured that while the house is in disrepair (well til the contractor can start working on the house), I'll just do some mindless stuff. I may start some cable clutch purses at some point, but who knows. It's not going to be anytime soon I don't think.
